The inventions and innovations of the Industrial Revolution transformed the U.S. and Great Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries. Tremendous gains in science and technology helped Britain become the world's dominant economic and political power, while in the U.S. it fueled a young nation's westward expansion and built vast fortunes. The British Motor Museum tells the fascinating story of Britain’s motor industry – the designers, the factories, the workers, the cars, the publicity and the drivers. During the ’50s and ’60s, the motorcycle industry was the third largest earner for Britain (after cars and whisky), and British bikes had an unrivaled reputation worldwide. These classic designs have become a part of our cultural history as well as our proud industrial past. VisitBritain Shop is the official shop of the British Tourist Board, and has everything you need for a great trip to Britain, including travelcards, rail passes and tickets to a variety of attractions.
